Default Alpine INA-W910 vs Alpine IVA-W505

Following along the same methodology of testing that I do with the other test units, I've tested the alpine w505 and w910 units for comparison purposes.
Here are other tests:
https://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...s-testing.html
https://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...omparison.html

I tested the CD source and the ipod source and plotted the results of each source between the decks.

The test was done with a power supply in line. Signal from cd and ipod routed directly in to my m-audio audiophile 2496 sound card RCA inputs on my PC via the headunit's "Front" RCA outputs.
iPod file was .wav format (lossless).

Wow! With all the hype associated with the 910 I expected it to whip the 505's butt.

THe CD section on the 505 is nice. The IPOD seems pretty good but I would rate it a push.

It looks like the used 505s just got an increase in resale value.

Erin, what ipod do you have? I'm willing to bet that the lineout from the dock into the aux in will measure better then the super duper "high quality USB input"

(This is the usb idevice test results on the w910 correct? I'm comfused cuz I see "analog" on the description)

"analog" simply means that it's analog (RCA) out of the headunit to the soundcard. IOW, no digital output to a processor or soundcard.

oh, newer gen ipod. 160gb.

me, too. the lack in resolution over the previous alpine unit is about 70% of the reason I'm sending it back. the other 30% is that the h800 flopped on me and without that, the 70% of the reason for getting rid of it became 100%.

It was most certainly a surprise given the fact that we were told here on the forum that the w910 was built with SQ in mind. Well, it may have a few crossover and t/a features, but the internals don't measure any better than the w505.... surprise, surprise.

Any comparison if you connect them to a PXA-H900?
Any comparison to the reference 9965 or 7990?
Do you hear the difference in Dynamic Range?

If anyone is looking for one, I have one available. PM me for info.

Is there a definitive answer on what signals are sent out through optical on the 910? Just CD? IPOD?

kinda new here, i know this thread is kinda old.

so the w910 and h800 combo wouldn't work at all? i'm really having a hard time choosing between the w910 and w505 mainly because we all know w505 is kinda old compared to the w910
